About Katie

Hello! My name is Katie, and I have been working as a tutor for the past ten years. I graduated from UCLA with a B.A. in French, and I have a Masters of Education in English Language Learning from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I am from Santa Clarita, but I spent the past year teaching English in China at a high school affiliated with College of the Canyons. Prior to that, I taught ESL at the College of Southern Nevada and UCLA Extension. I was also the site director and head teacher of a private language school in Las Vegas called the International Academy of English, where I taught ESL classes in the areas of grammar, reading, writing, listening, and speaking. I have had formal training in active learning strategies and lesson planning and have tutored students of all ages, from elementary to adults, in elementary subjects, French, English, and ESL. I currently teach ESL at Glendale Community College. Although ESL is my specialization, I am able to tutor students in a variety of other subjects. I would be happy to help you or your learner if you are interested! Hello! My name is Katie, and I have been working as a tutor for the past ten years.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working as an elementary tutor for the past 8 years. I have had formal training in active learning strategies, lesson planning, and curriculum and assessment development. I have tutored elementary students in language arts, including reading comprehension, phonics, writing, and spelling, as well as different levels of math, ESL, and French.

Elementary Math

I have tutored elementary students in all subjects for the past eight years. I specialize in math skills.

ESL/ESOL

I graduated from UCLA with a B.A. in French and Francophone Studies, and I have been working as a tutor for the past five years. I have tutored elementary, junior high, high school and college students in English, including composition, reading comprehension, grammar and sentence structure. I have also tutored high school students in ESL. I worked at College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita tutoring first year composition students, and I also taught English at a French elementary school in Paris. I currently teach ESL online to students in Korea.

Awesome, upbeat, knowledgeable tutor

So far my 16 year old daughter has had only one lesson with Katie, but she loved it. Katie was on time which is super important to us as we usually have a tight schedule. My daughter was very excited to start learning French and Katie seemed just as excited to teach her. They had a great session, and my daughter is looking forward to next week.
